A few tins of paint and a spare £850k are all that stands between you and making this cottage near Rugby a dream home.

Burnham House in Lilbourne is a Grade II listed three bed farmhouse, complete with almost nine acres of land and stables.

The house offers heaps of charm and stunning country views, but the décor, although quite charming, could do with an update.

Estate agents Sworders write: "Burnham House offers the perfect opportunity to develop, modernise and refurbish the property in this enviable edge of village position with views over the countryside."

Period features abound throughout the house, with beams, old-fashioned windows and two fireplaces.

Perhaps the highlights of the house, aside from the stunning gardens, are French doors in the dining room, which open out to said gardens, and the cosy sitting room which comes complete with a huge fireplace.

The property is marketed by Sworders of Holkham, visit www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/101278553#/ to see the full listing.
